Hello, I have a general question about Prismic’s Slices and Slice Machine.
I am not a technical person, I don’t know how to write code. I am the product owner and I work with a developer team. They use Prismic because I asked them to do so. We use Next.Js on the front end side.
I recently received an email that introduced Slice Machine, which seems like a huge improvement for Prismic users. However, I want to be sure I understand what it does for me as a product owner and content editor.
This is how I understand it works and how it is different from the previous version:
I am a content editor and I ask the dev team to create a new URL on my site and connect it with Prismic Slice Machine. After this connection is established, I am able to add any page elements (slices) to this page. In essence, the dev. team will not have to manually update each page (URL) depending on its content.
So I can have 5 different pages with 5 different contents (1 with a picture, another without a picture, one with 2 testimonials and one without any, these pages does not have to have the same slices and the same fields). The only thing the dev team has to do is to add the new URL to my site.
Is this correct? And this is different because before the Slice Machine, each slice had to be connected with an API to the page so it required a lot more work from the dev team.
Please let me know if I understand correctly.
